When unlocked, it is fought at the Smash Bros. version of Boxing Ring.

Attributes Edit

Strengths Edit

  • Excellent throws, including the strongest back throw in the game.
  • Aggressive at close combat.
  • Darkest Lariat along with effective grabs makes shielding ineffective against Incineroar.
  • Heavy weight grants high survivability.
  • Darkest Lariat has high priority and knockback.
  • Alolan Whip can launch at varying angles, which can confuse opponents and throw off their recovery. The Back Body Drop can kill opponents off the ceiling at very high percentages. The Lariat has high horizontal knockback that can kill fairly early. Flubbing the attack after grabbing an opponent with it off-stage can prevent the opponent from properly recovering.
  • Cross Chop is an exceptionally powerful kill move with high knockback.
  • Revenge is a counter that increases the power of Incineroar's next attack, the effects of which can stack up to three times, allowing Incineroar to deal massive damage and kill very early. Revenge can easily deal with projectiles, one of Incineroar's main weaknesses.

Weaknesses Edit

  • No projectiles, entirely dependent on close ranged combat.
  • Poses after landing certain attacks. These poses can be cancelled, but can also be a hindrance.
  • Has the slowest dash speed in the game.
  • Poor air speed.
  • Rather large hurtbox makes Incineroar susceptible to combos and juggling.
  • Alolan Whip leaves Incineroar open to attack if he misses. Failing to press the attack button during Alolan Whip can cause Incineroar to take recoil damage.
  • Cross Chop has very poor vertical and horizontal distance, and is easy to self-destruct with.
  • Revenge is vulnerable to grabs.

Trivia Edit

  • Incineroar's title, "Incineroar enters the ring!", is actually quite literal when it is revealed in Ken's trailer. Additionally, Ken trash-talks Incineroar (as per his personality) when it appears, since their moveset involves fire.
  • Incineroar was Unshō Ishizuka‘s last Pokémon character to be voiced in Japanese, before his death on August 13, 2018 prior to its reveal.
  • Incineroar has many moves that resemble attacks used by Zangief and Alex from Street Fighter. Zangief's spirit battle uses Incineroar as the fighter.
  • Incineroar's 4th colour variation resembles Big the Cat from the Sonic the Hedgehog universe. Big's spirit battle uses Incineroar as the fighter.
  • According to the producer Masahiro Sakurai, Decidueye was originally meant to be the new Pokemon fighter in Ultimate instead of Incineroar, but was dropped out and chooses Incineroar, due to Incineroar having a more unique moveset.
